77 :: AKIRA

I had to break my blogging hiatus cause of the recent events that happened in Singapore. As the title says, it’s about AKIRA! Which Akira? That goddess from KERA magazine, the vocals for Disacode, the designer for Malus14. LOOK HER UP IF YOU DON’T ALREADY KNOW!!!

Warning: This post will have a lot of caps I think.

20160610_172506I went to Singapore last Thursday (9th June). The main reason for this really last minute trip was for Akira, I booked my flight like a week before or so? I’ve been waiting for more than 4 years to meet Akira in real life. The closest thing I have are her CDs/KERA magazines and 2 years ago a signature Reika got for me when they were in Houston as guests.

Really glad I had friends that were willing to take me in so I save on accommodation fees ;_; Then the kind hearted ones that fed me too. Ahaha you guys know who you are //much love to all of you//  Continue reading

76 :: STABBED

I’m not the type of person that gets a lot of dreams, so usually when I do, I remember them, and pretty detailedly too. So anyway, this dream was something new, probably one I never gotten before so why not share it out? Though it’s pretty start to start the story cause the dream started right in the middle with no explanation whatsoever.

[Warning: It is a violent dream?] Continue reading

75 :: Chloe Price

20160214_212800It’s been a long time since I updated! I actually drafted another post about my trip to Osaka but I procrastinated so much it’s been almost 2 months ;;; And Weiss managed to update her trip to Osaka as well 8D So that’ll do for now.

Anyways, anyone played Life Is Strange?? I’m super late to the fandom cause I had to control my spending before I went to Japan. I’ve only finished the game once (and I’ll replay it after I finish some of the Arkham Knight DLCs!) but I really enjoyed the game, some parts were tedious but still considered pretty easy. Great game to play for the story, even though there are a lot of unexplained things.

I loved both Max and Chloe in the game! Really wanna cosplay both characters but I don’t have their wigssss. I managed to borrow a blue wig from my friend though. The color was too light for Chloe but nothing Photoshop can’t fix for a test :3

First of all, I need to rave about these lashes *^* I got them when I was in Osaka, from a shop called Assist Wig. They specialize in cosplay-related stuff. So this is called Boys Lash Continue reading

73 :: Journey to Osaka (day 0)

I’ve been counting down the days to this trip, so yes I’ve been that excited. This is also by far my longest trip overseas.
So how it started off, I booked bus tickets to KLIA. Which is where my flight is going to depart, since there’s only one direct bus a day (11.45pm every night) I took the one on the 23rd. I would definitely miss my flight if I took the one on the 24th as my flight is early in the morning.

The night of the 23rd didn’t start out great. The bus was really late, and I found out the bus that was supposed to come broke down so they switched to another one which is a less comfortable one. 30seater changed to a 40seater and by the time it got here the bus was kinda full. So I took the seat at the most back cause I didn’t wanna sit with most of the guys there (plus they had some B.O)

This is the bus situation. But Continue reading

72 :: Where to find fabric and EVA foams in Jakarta?

Pasar Tanah Abang (Tanah Abang Market)! I wouldn’t have found the shops to get the foams if its not for my Indonesian friends’ help. (Thank you so much, Sora!)

Local name: Busa Ati

Or better known as EVA foam. Some of us know it as the shoe sole sheets, funsheets, rubber sheets or even craft foam. To my understanding, this sheet actually comes in different quality and material. Some are more porous, some are more compact while some are more rubbery.

These foams from Jakarta were mainly used to make hats or songkok (a kind of kopiah Muslim men wears). So its commonly found in hat material suppliers. And they are more rubbery than foamy.

So if you’re in town and looking for one, you can just say ‘busa ati untuk buat topi’. We had a hard time asking the locals about busa ati. xD

Price: (As of Nov 2015) 30,000 IDR per piece of 2mm thickness. One piece is about 1.2m x 2.5m.

50,000 IDR per piece of 4mm thickness. One piece is also about 1.2m x 2.5m

Hag-gable? Continue reading

71 :: May The Force Be With You

IMG_2362

With the new Star Wars movie coming out in December, you can probably spot Star Wars related items everywhere! I’m also really excited for the movie ヽ(*≧ω≦)ノ But I should probably marathon the previous movies to refresh my memory.

I received the nendoroid at the same time as the Saber Extra, as mentioned in the previous post! My brother unboxed it so I didn’t get much pictures. Used my laptop as the background again and took a few shots with my phone so I’m sorry for the graininess.
